Your Song (Elton John) Cover

Dear KTVA,

I recently did a cover of Your Song by Elton John, also one of my favorite songs. Instead of singing it like the original, however, I decided to just transpose the tune by two half-steps to bring out the brightness in my middle register, and I also tried to subdue some of my resonance as much as possible while trying to make the song a bit more 'urgent' if you want to call it that way. Your comments are absolutely appreciated :)

Regards and with love,
Tim

    Good Job, Tim.

    This sounds a little bit dark, but maybe that's what you wanted. I would make the whole recording brighter (guitar AND voice), but that's my own opinion. I would also try to sing more in upper mid-chest instead of head voice on some of the high parts... again, just my preference.

    As always, you did the song justice.

    Hey Bob, thanks for the comment. Apparently I decided to record everything live on a smartphone instead since I felt that I could not get the feel right when both the guitar and vocals are recorded separately. Attached is the new link:

    I like this version better, but both were good. This is brighter, a little more timbral, besides being recorded differently.
